reefer for martians

The clouds part and a UFO comes down and lands nearby. A Martian approaches. The guy holds the joint out toward the Martian.

not_again.jpgI hope everyone has seen this splendid anti-drug commercial. Basically, the statement it makes is that if you do drugs, aliens will steal your girlfriend. Now I’m pretty skeptical when it comes to the existence of aliens – should I also be skeptical of the repercussions of drug use? How is this supposed to discourage me from getting high?

Maybe the alien is a figment of the stoned guy’s imagination. Is the girlfriend also such a figment? Perhaps the alien is just a normal man, stealing the druggie’s chick. Whatever the case, I don’t think this ad is even remotely going to dissuade anyone from smoking the occasional joint. It would probably be a better idea to stick with realistic negative effects, like showing the inside of that pothead’s lungs.

  1. My impression of these commercials is that they are meant for people that are already on drugs. Whereas to a person who doesn’t do drugs, the alien analogy is far off. I think the makers are experimenting in subliminal advertisement for druggies.
